now, we're counting down to tonight's presidential debate. mitt romney's motorcade just pulled up at the debate hall. president obama's expected to arrive in denver any minute as well. we'll be talking with top supporters of each candidate. the former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, he'll join us live this hour. also we'll be hearing from both candidates' wives in special cnn interviews. today, by the way, is the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. so what's it like spending the night with the romneys? i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> 34 days from the presidential election but much more importantly right now at least right now we've reached what may be the most decisive night of the 2012 campaign, the first presidential debate at the university of denver. after weeks of downplaying expectations, mitt romney's campaign insiders are finally opening up about what they really think can be accomplished tonight. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is in denver getting ready to set the scene. jim. >> reporter: wolf, the romney campaign sees the polls m
debate between mitt romney and president obama. it is the first of three presidential debates before the november 6 election. tonight's debate will focus on domestic policy, but one issue that will not be covered is the actual structure of the debate itself. the obama and romney campaigns have secretly negotiated a detailed contract that dictates many of the terms of the 2012 presidential debates. this includes who gets to participate, as well as the topics raised in the debate. now 18 pro-democracy groups are calling on the commission of presidential debates, a private corporation, to review the details of the negotiated agreement. meanwhile, libertarian nominee gary johnson has filed an antitrust lawsuit for entry into the debates against the commission on presidential debates. in addition, supporters of green party nominee jill stein plan to protest outside of the debate under the banner of occupied the cpd. jill stein and rocky anderson will appear on democracy now!'s expanding the debate exclusive tonight. we will air the obama-romney debate, pausing after questions to include e
of governor romney. >> we know all the time the presidential candidate has to be smart enough not to get himself in the holes and he has not passed that particular test. it's not enough, should not be enough to shift the whole world media, but if it does, it does. he's got to be beyond it, that's his challenge and he's got to make a credible case. >> so much of what's going on with the white house and the administration, they've misdiagnosed the economy, they've misdiagnosed the problems, you know, we had, you know, a summer of recovery, escape velocity language out of the who white house and 2010. and even the federal reserve saying we're more focused on inflation in in 2010 than growth-- is the american media more focused on economic justice versus economic growth? >> to a degree i agree. we need a recovery to recover from this recovery. and it's badly structured, badly thought through and frankly the possibility of doing something early enough is behind us. so everybody is paying the price in terms of the national economy. but the reflection of that is, 23, 24 million people who were
to the white house coverage continues with president obama and republican presidential candidate mitt romney. at rallies in virginia. then a conversation with syndicated columnist ann coulter. >> the bureau of labor statistics has announced that the u.s. unemployment rate has dropped from 8.1% to 7.8% in september. the lowest level since january, 2009. president obama spoke about the job pick fewer at this rally at george mason university in fairfax, virginia. it's about 30 minutes. >> hello, everybody!

[applause] it's also good to know that we've got the former governor and next united states senator from the commonwealth of virginia, tim kaine! and
to toe with this president and look presidential. romney was effective in doing that during this debate where the president -- i think his strategy was to be more likeable, and we saw that congruent in his body language, with the head tilts, which are around the idea of likability, which was a big thing toure brought up earlier at the top of the program. >> we saw a lot of the president's stress and dislike of the situation in his mouth. he would close his mouth in a forceful way that seemed to create like crow's feet beneath his lip, which seemed to suggest he's unhappy being there. you see it there. it looks like a dimple up before the smile. you saw it more. that communicates stress, right? i'm not happy to be here, right? >> yes. it's kind of a smile, right? it's a smile underneath, and underneath that smile is some contempt. i think he was feeling a lot of disagreement with what mitt romney cwas saying. we saw it from romney a little bit. romney had that permagrin on. that smile is insincere and can can mark there's more to the story here. how do i reply to this? i disagree with th
presidential debate, meanwhile mitt romney is off to the trail. we have two reports, we begin with nbc's peter alexander, he's with the romney campaign in boston, with a good morning to you, peter. what are you hearing about all the debate preps today. he o'clock najs that this is an important opportunity in her debate. people have a tendency to focus on the small things, like the color of a candidate's tie or the dramatic one liners, which is his need to get across the big picture message. he says if he does that, he thinks he can be effective over the course of the next three debates and ultimately win this thing. we heard this morning from governor chris christie of new jersey, i want to play you another clip from new jersey this morning. chris christ >> and so they're going start tuning in on wednesday night and when they do, governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america and better opportunity for all of our citizens, and i think that's when you're going to see this race really start to tighten and move to governor romney's direction. come thursday morning,
happened last night. when mitt romney beat president obama in last night's televised debate. so the first televised presidential debate that we had was in 1960. here are all of the other years that we have since have televised presidential debates. every four years now we have these debates on tv. the only years, though, so these are all the years, right, right? the only years, though, in which you had an incumbent president running against a challenger in all of the years we've had presidential debates on tv are these years. so in terms of understanding the historical context of what happened last night when mitt romney beat president obama in this first debate, this is the universe of like things to compare it to. this is how to understand it in terms of american political history. it's only these years right here. that's it. now, by definition, you never have an incumbent president in this situation more than once. presidents can only serve two terms so there's only one opportunity when they carry into that debate, when they're running for re-election, they carry into that debate the g
presidential debate was ever the highest 01:39:43:rate ed debate. we have this again. >> governor romney, last night, people say he mangled the truth to put it gently. the obama campaign -- they did a smart thing today. got up bright and early this morning realizing they took a loss last night and began pointing out where governor romney had not said what he said before, had not stuck to the truth. however, we learned again last night, if we needed reminding, that there's power in taking the view. listen, i'm frequently in error, but never in doubt. i believe what i'm telling you. and that carries its own power and strength. >> especially when you're talking to 50 million or 60 million people at a time. that is a perfect segue to everything we're doing in the rest of the hour on this show. dan rather, always such an honor to have you. >> thank you, rachel. enjoy to be on. >> "dan rather reports" is on axs tv. okay. we'll be right back. >>> okay. we do not expect from the romney campaign and their surrogates any level of subtlety anymore when it comes to dog whistling about the president's race
before the second presidential debate. they will be hitting it hard in the debate. romney and ryan in friendly territory here in fishersville. the rally won't be until later on today because they want all those sound bites from last night's debate to marinate before romney and ryan take it stage here today. bill: john roberts in the western part of virginia. martha: while all this marinates. president obama has been hit with some criticism from some republicans for bringing former president bill clinton into the mix. >> we tried both approaches. the approach governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years, we ended up moving from surplus to deficits, and it all culminated in the financial crisis since the great depression. bill clinton tried the approach i'm talking about. we created 23 million you are in jobs. we went from deficit to surplus, and businesses did very well. martha: don't forget that bill clinton did very well for this president at his convention. but there is karl rove's
fineman. >> assume you're mitt romney and you have had a terrible summer, september and august, all the way through. you boopted it in london, you booted it over libya, you haven't looked presidential and bill clinton comes in, makes the democratic party look fabulous, the economy look really good. how do you fix that in one night? >> that's what mitt romney has to begin trying to do. this is it for mitt. that was the lead of my piece in "the huffington post," words of one sill belabel. this is it for mitt. >> it rhymes. >> he has to change the conversation, and do what you said, which is express clear, big, convincing, humane and understandable thoughts about he, how he can be the better person to take the economy forward and take the country forward. he said he wanted this to be about the economy. the romney -- the obama people have jammed the radar, romney's radar for six months, ago? now romney has 60 million people out there. he has to look at the camera and say, this is in simple, clear terms is how i'm going to help you and how we're going to fix the economy. >> same question
an advantage in the way the non-rules are in this debate tonight. and i also think that mitt romney has come off a series of really easy debates. we have to remember, mitt romney triumphed in a republican presidential field that was the worst republican presidential field in the history of the republican party. those are the debates he won. he was the one on the stage who did not look outright insane, compared to the rest of them. that isn't going to work for him tonight. he's going against the best debater mitt romney has ever been up against in his life. this is going to be, i think, a really great debate. >> preparing for this, i went back and looked at some of the 1994 debates between romney and kennedy, looking at some of that to see, you know, how does he deal with a democratic opponent? we've seen him debate a lot of republicans, but not a lot of democrats. and if it's half as fun as it was between him and ted kennedy, we are in for a very, very fun night ahead. lawrence, thank you for that, particularly on the rules. i think that was a really important point. we'll talk with you agai
preparations. he will be joined by senator john kerry who is playing the role of republican presidential nominee mitt romney. >>> there is trouble for florida's republican party where a voter registration controversy is brewing. the state's party fired a private consulting firm it hired to help registered voters after learning it may have submitted fraudulent registration forms. suspicious forms have been discovered in at least five florida counties. >>> rick santorum says mitt romney and the republicans should support todd akin. santorum says an akin win is necessary. akin is challenging democratic senator claire mccaskill. he has been criticized by both democrats and republicans for using the term legitimate rape. >>> down ballot politics are next with maryland governor martin o'malley and missouri senator roy blunt.

start for governor romney. >> and the next one up of course the vice presidential debate. david gregory, because this was at the end of the day, despite the high stakes, a television show tonight watched by perhaps north of 50 million americans, there is a new half generation of americans coming to this, seeing the format, the stagecraft, the question pods, as jim lehrer in the thankless job, let's put that out, of moderator pointed out. how do you think that will be received? and what's been said so far tonight on social media about it? >> well, you know, it's a good question because i think part of this, as tom alludes to, is what about the undecided voter? do we get to the truth of the matter here? the truth is it's very difficult to get to that. in part because it would be better if there was a little more follow-up. it would be better if they could engage each ooshs interrupt each other a little bit, so we could get to the bottom of something instead of just a list of particulars and some of their talking points. that's the limit here. so we do focus more on who had more energy, wh
for republicans argue before the next presidential debate and president obama is great orator and romney is so, so. we saw romney give stronger performance. expectations for him will be higher in the next debate. >> james, one of our 10 to 20 reporters we have on the ground at the debate in denver has been in the spin room. he is joining us. hey, homan, forget the romney side of things for a second. what are you hearing from the obama officials that are in "the spin room"? is anyone making the case that in fact he won or are they being more clear eyed in the assessment of it? >> they're being more clear eyed, jim. some private grumbling about jim lehrer. you're hearing some people say with the halperin quote you said, kind of downplaying the significance of this thing. most people made up their minds. you're hearing what mike mentioned a few minutes ago, people saying yeah, romney did well stylelisticly but not substantively. i can tell you on the republican side i'm sensing real confidence. the republicans are the first people to get in the spin room. they came pouring in with their placards duri
, a vice presidential debate next week and then two more debates with mr. romney and the president, there was a moment, john during the debate, where the two candidates were attacking each other's tax policy and i think it's a good window on how the candidates felt free to go after each other. let's have a look at that for just a moment. >> if you believe we can cut taxes by $5 trillion and add $2 trillion in additional spending that the military is not asking for. $7 trillion, to give you a sense over ten years that's more than our entire defense budget. and you think that by closing loopholes and deductions for the well-to-do somehow you will not end up picking up the tab than governor romney's plan may work for you. >> i want to lower spending and encourage economic growth at the same time. what things would i cut from spending? well, first of all i will eliminate all programs by this test, if they don't pass it. is the program so critical it's worth borrowing money from china to pay for it? if not i'll get rid of it. obamacare is on my list, i apologize mr. president, i use tha
to 1980 to find a better republican presidential debate. i don't know where mitt romney's been, but my god, he showed up last night. >> for all the talk about zingers and everything else coming in, he was comfortable. his jokes were funny. he wasn't forced. he wasn't stilted. and he came with information. there have been complaints over and over -- we've made them here -- that this campaign's been about nothing. that was an incredibly substantive debate on both sides. >> it was. >> two smart guys with two very different visions of america having an actual debate. >> willie, i'm so glad you said that because the middle of the debate last night, we've been trashing both camps for saying nothing. and i looked up at the screen, as dysfunctional as american politics are, and i went, oh, my god, we've got two really intelligent guys here. >> exactly. >> one guy that's been extraordinarily successful in the business world and the other that's been extraordinarily successful in the political world, and they're fighting out two world views. >> i got the sense, though, that president obama was not r

romney, the republican nominee. this debate in the next three, two presidential, one vice presidential are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues that will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six roughly 15 minute segment with two-minute answers for the first question, then open discussion for the remainder of each segment. thousands of people offered suggestions on segment subjects or questions via the internet and other means, but i made the final selections. and for the record, they were not submitted for approval to the commission or the candidates. the segments as i announced in a van will be three on the economy and one each on health care, the role of government and governing, with an emphasis throughout the difference is, specific century says. both candidates will also have two-minute closing statements. the audience here in the hall has promised to remain silent. no cheers, applause, boos, hisses among other noisy distracting things. so we may all concentrate on what the candidates have to

participated in presidential debates whereas mitt romney has not had that opportunity. it's incumbent on both of them to get their message out. but the key for governor romney is go out there and be respectful and be strong and make sure that the truth gets out there. he's going to get out there and show he has a choice. we have a choice between a president with a record who promotes government dependency as opposed to romney who will help upward mobility for this country. that's a choice the american people want to make and they will make an informed choice based on the facts getting out there. >> you don't think it helped mitt romney had the primary to go through going up against your former bosses in those debates? >> those are certainly helpful. but when you have obviously more than one person you're going against, it's rather difficult. but the good thing as we saw in '08, what he was good with the mccain/obama debates, he let them go face to face. i expect to see that wednesday night. that's good. get the two of them in there debating the issues. make sure each of them are factually acc

more debates, and obviously a vice presidential debate as well. anna, romney actually talked a lot about jobs. he kept going back to had it. he was very, very focused here, and he accused the president of killing jobs. it didn't even matter what the subject was. he kept bringing it back to jobs. was there anything that you felt that the president needed to focus on, that he could have made more inroads? >> he needed to focus, period, suzanne. he just was unfocused. he wasn't quite there. you know, he -- why didn't he bring up all the -- why didn't he correct the things he felt he needed correcting? because he was slow-footed. why didn't he focus on one or two or three of his big achievements? because he was slow-footed. he just wasn't at the top of his game. i think mitt romney took advantage of that and, you know, we saw him even dominate the debate format and really just be head and shoulders above president obama yesterday when everybody expected the opposite. the good news i have for my democratic friends is that now, look, i think now the debate expectation games has turned up
